An Errand and a Mix-up

Today we needed to get a battery for the garage door opener. Instead of parking in the alley at the back door of the hardware store, we parked in front because the batteries are near the front door and the cashier is there. We pulled up in front of the Ace Hardware. There was a sign. Use the back door cashier because the cash register in front is out of order.

So, I backed out and drove to the alley where we usually ALWAYS park. I went in and walked to the front of the store. No one was there and I could find no batteries. As I was returning to the back, a clerk asked if she could help me find something. I said yes, this round flat battery, #2032. They are now at the back of the store where I had originally entered, near the cashier. She said they had moved them recently!

I guess that was my exercise for the day.


  1. I hate it when they move stuff around in the store. I think it is their ploy to get us to walk around in the store and spend more!

    1. Exactly. And as you look, you might see something you didn't know you needed!

  2. I agree with Connie. In fact, I was actually told by a grocery store manager that's the exact reason they move things around. So as you look for your original item, you'll find more things to buy.
    I'm glad you finally were able to get your battery though. :-)
